Sounds like a defective breaker. You replaced the breaker, right?
Someone somedays gonna read that and not see the humor in it. And then they're going to go out there and start replacing every breaker that properly trips just because they remember reading that somewhere. I hope you're happy john.

That disconnect is still salvageable. Reminds me of a saying "A little powder and a little paint can make a girl what she ain't."

I may be an apprentice but I was under the impression that if a breaker keeps tripping you are supposed to install a much larger breaker.

I got a QO160 I'll sell to the highest bidder. I call it the equalizer, it will literally end all of your single pole breaker issues

At this point I honestly do feel sorry for the DIY'er that are reading these posts.

Just for the DIY'ers; A bigger breaker is not the answer.

An electrician IS the answer.
